As my opponent forfeited, I'll start off.

Is eating Soy good?

Yes it is for the following reasons
1. Reduce the heart disease [1]
2. Reduces the risk of cancer [1]
3. Soy milk improve lipid profile, strengthen blood vessel integrity, promote weight loss [2]

Rebuttals

1. Soy is known to cause raised estrogen levels and therefore if not compensated for correctly can cause hormonal problems in both men and women

Though it may true for over consumption of Soy, Moderate consumption helps to reduce estrogen level in females and reduces the risk of prostate cancer.....[1]

Conclusion

Moderate consumption of Soy has many health benefits as stated above. Though over consumption may result in certain health problems, people should know the adequate consumption and try not to cross the limit of consumption. Thus moderate consumption of Soy is definitely beneficial for both men and women.

I'm dissapointed in the outcome of tthis debate. Con you had a huge chance! You could have mentioned how most of the world's soybeans come from Monsanto, which is a company that makes GMOs and sell their genetically modified crops to the market. Monsanto is considered my many to be the evilest corporation in the world because of all the harm they've done to the environment and to society. Many if not all of their genetically modified crops can cause negative health effects for humans, soy beans included. They genetically modified corn to be poisoness to rats who eat them, killing them. The only reason humans dont die from eating them is because there isnt enough poison in the corn to kill us, but there has been many cases of negative health effects to humans due to the consumption of corn. Monsanto also does something similar to soy beans, therefore eating soy isn't good for you.
